COMLEX-USA. The National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) administers the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX-USA) board examinations that consist of Levels 1, 2 CE, 2 PE and 3. The purpose of the COMLEX-USA board examination series is to assess the osteopathic medical knowledge and clinical skills required for osteopathic generalist physicians to practice medicine without supervision.
KYCOM requires that its
medical students take and pass the COMLEX Levels 1, 2 CE and 2 PE board
examinations as part of their graduation requirements. Following graduation and
as part of residency training, KYCOM graduates also must pass the COMLEX-USA
Level 3 examination. First-time pass rates on COMLEX examinations for KYCOM
students and graduates are as follows.
Residency Placements. 98-99% of graduates of the KYCOM classes of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 have obtained residency placements in graduate medical education programs offered by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or by the military.
